Another slow week on the writing front, but I’ve got an excuse!
Book of M:
- Background Notes Wordcount: 1,472 words
Grand Total: 1,472 words
I had the time to write this week… but I didn’t spend as much of it writing as normally I would have. That’s because on several days where I would’ve had good writing time I was reading instead. I finished up a book this week (I’ll be talking about it more sometime this week or next), and I’d hit the “must finish this now” stage. I enjoyed the book – with caveats – but I’ll save the details on all that for later.
Writing-wise, I don’t have much to say. The time I spent writing went okay, but I had no major insights or new thoughts… Just chugging along.
I could say a little about how, as I continue with worldbuilding and background notes… I find that the world I’ve created just increases in complexity each time I sit down to write. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes of this story. Enough that I’ve come to suspect that, if I put some thought into it, I’ve got enough to support a second novel in this world if I choose to. My plan was always for this to be stand-alone, and so far that’s still my plan. But I can see value in producing a second book in this world at some point.
Regardless, this novel will have a complete plot – a beginning, middle and end – and you won’t have to read a second novel to get the rest of the story. But there’s certainly room in this world for more stories. For now, though, I don’t worry about it too much. I can come back to it later, after I’ve figured this novel out.
How was your writing week?
